However, in the 90th minute McGeady curled the ball into the net from distance to hand Martin O'Neill's men the victory.
He told Sky Sports News: "Ireland's second goal was the only moment of quality in the second half. Perhaps a draw would have been a fair result and left both teams happy.
"Our performance is not what we want to see and we definitely want to see better games and results. We have limitations in the team and in Georgian football in general - that is the reality we have to face.
"We cannot fault the players' effort and they stuck to task for 99% of the time, but Ireland have 25 players who play at the top level with most in the Premier League."
Georgia face Scotland at Ibrox in their next qualifier in October 11.
